The maximum temperature for the Processor I5-750 is 72.7 °C , This what I recommend you to do:
1. Update your system BIOS , you can download the latest BIOS for the DH55HC here:
2. Reseat your fan and processor, make sure that the processor is properly cover with the thermal interface material and that you are using the original Intel heatsink and fan, for more information check the installation website for your processor :
Also you can check the installation video:
3. For more information on overheating problems with your processor please check the following URL:
Thanks Sergio for the reply
All drivers and Bios was up to date as of Sunday 4-25
I have reseated the fan.
I have moved the fan connectotor to one of the chassis fans connector to try a different connection.
I have looked at the link you mentioned but to no avail.
The proccesor does not seem to be over heating but the Intel utilities are reporting that it is. I have not tried any other software to monitor heat. Do you know of a free trial version of some to try?
How many case fans do you have a better ventilated case may help??
Than again theres always H2o cooling ( Cousair H-50 ) kit works great.
As far as a case it is a Thermaltake with 2 fans and it is more than enough cooling with 2 fans for my customer.
I suspect that the Motherboard is bad. Intel refuses to exchange the board. They want me to send it to them for testing and wait for several weeks for a answer. This is not acceptable. My customer will not wait for their answer to correct it. I have done at least 3 dozen builds with all intel boards and none have failed except this one. It will likely be my last time with a Intel board after finding out they will not exchange a board.
You know I had a simalar problem with a thermatake case and I got another case that had top fans , I mean I had a real heat problem CPU running at 60C ,So I took all my compenants and put them in a case that had four fans two top and one front and one back , this dropped my temps from 60c to 40c just by having better ventilation , amazing difference , now the sys. runs at a stable temp. .. I could not belive the difference.
I turned off intels software and all is fine. I think that the software is just buggy. Its been several months and no more problem.
